We believe that our spiritual pursuits inspire service. The Chapel is thus a servant to the common good, not just of the High Point

University campus but the wider High Point community and the world.

The Board of Stewards are the student leadership group who shape the life and witness of Hayworth Chapel. They lead in four ways: worship, service, philanthropy, and community building. Each Board member dedicates themselves to one of these categories each year.

The Board of Stewards oversee the offering collected during weekly Chapel, directing to serve the people of High Point. Over the 2018-19 academic year, the Board of Stewards raised more than $30,000 for local High Point social services, specifically the Salvation Army Angel Tree Project and Leslie’s House of West End Ministries.

Students can apply to be a part of the Board of Stewards in the fall of each academic year. Members are selected based upon demonstration of leadership qualities, desire to serve and commitment to Christian discipleship. For more information about becoming a member of the Board of Stewards, contact Sophie Carter (President) at scarter2@highpoint.edu or Nick Kirby (Vice President) at nkirby@highpoint.edu.





“Each week, services in the Charles E. Hayworth Sr. Memorial Chapel are packed with students, faculty, and staff who commune together in a time of Christian fellowship. Without question or exception, these Chapel services nourish our souls and feed our hearts. These stewards of Christian service stand as examples to the rest of the campus. We are grateful for their commitment to the University, and we give them our full support.”
—Dr. Nido Qubein, HPU President
